“Had a blast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I really had fun here on my 2 night stay. The staff were friendly and helpful, WIFI was good, never had an issue.
Had a nice room to ourselves, there was only 1 other in the room. It was big and the toilet and shower were in separate rooms in the rooms. Shower on the left and toilet on the right. The bed was comfortable as you would expect from a hostel. Water ran hot quickly and the bathroom was nice and clean.
Downstairs where the food area was was great fun, on certain nights there are various activities or parties happening. Food was cheap and very good. Nice relaxing outdoors area also with a swimming pool and outdoor bar. I drank about 100 Birra Moretti's while I was there and had a awesome time.
Also everything was close, Statue of David was walking distance, market also.
If your looking for a good crowd and a lot of fun I can recommend this highly.

I stayed here as part of a top deck tour and i enjoyed it. the rooms were clean and the staff friendly and helpful. the wifi was a joke and rarely worked however and there was no soap provided in the bathrooms. It was a short walk to the main attractions and the train station was about 2 minutes away. The rooms on the lower floor were quite loud with the noise from the bar which was extremely busy the night i stayed, however the bar tenders were excellent and very friendly. i wouldnt mind staying again.

The check in took a really long time. There was only one girl at the reception and tons of people waiting in the lobby.
We wanted to pay in the moment of the check in because we had to leave early and in a hurry the next day but the receptionist said that she couldn't handle so many people and couldn't make the payment, so she kept our ID's until the moment of our checkout. Ridiculous.

The wifi connection is a joke, don't waste your time because you won't be able to use it in your room.

You have to make your own bed in the moment you arrive. If you want towels you have to rent them for 2€ each. You will also won't have any soap or shampoo, you have to bring your own. But I guess that's normal in all Plus Hostels.

Apart from that, for a hostel it's a really clean one. The location is great and (at least my room) was very quiet and spacious.

I wouldn't mind staying here again.

Decided to book here after staying at Plus Berlin which was great ! 3 of us booked a triple private room.

The room was run down and dirty (which was a shock considering it is a fairly new hotel). The bunk bed was creaky and wobbly and very unsafe ! The mattresses were very uncomfortable also ! The bathroom was also dirty and the shower had no curtain causing the whole bathroom to be soaking wet afterwards.

To top this all off - the staff were very rude overall and not very helpful !

The only positive from this hotel was the free wifi and close distance to the main train station.

For the price we paid, we were not expecting luxury but we were very disappointed overall !

Best thing I can say about this hostel is that it was VERY clean.
The staff at reception was helpful, but check-in took a lot of time due to the large volume of people checking in only helped by two people at reception.
The wifi was a joke as it was very weak signal in the room and kept disconnecting.
There are two buildings, one in the front with the dorms, and one in the back with the private rooms; the one with private rooms, in which we stayed, is right next to the highway, so it can be difficult to get a good night's sleep.

Very clean, service was good and efficient. A lot of college, young travelers staying here but it never affected our sleep. Location is great, but seems a little far if carrying heavy luggage. They have a luggage room which was extremely convenient. I would definitely recommend this place.

I was only here for 1 evening but I had an enjoyable stay. A lot of facilities though i could not make use of them is such short time. Very close to the town center which is always great. Check in was ok but I am on a bus tour so you can only do so much with 100+ people all turning up together. I would recommend this accommodation.
